Summary:

Borisa Simanic is a skilled, 6-10 big man that may have an intriguing set of skills.  He is an offensive minded player that can make shots from all over the paint, and he also can block shots.  He had a strong season this year as he played well in both the Adriatic League and in the Euroleague.  He will likely need to improve his rebounding and position defense, but his jump shot and offensive skills could enable him to be a second round pick for the 2020 draft.
